Ben Affleck is dating “Saturday Night Live” producer Lindsay Shookus, Gossip Cop has learned. A source close to the Oscar-winning actor tells us “it’s early” and the relationship is “not serious yet.”

Affleck’s new romance comes only three months after he and Garner filed for divorce.

The new couple, who are “having fun and care for each other,” were recently spotted in London together, where they caught a showing of Sam Mendes’ play Ferryman.

The pair were also photographed in Los Angeles earlier this month.

As Gossip Cop reported, Affleck and Garner first announced their divorce after 10 years of marriage in 2015, but neither star ended up filing. Two years later, amid false reconciliation rumors, Garner put in her court papers, confirming their official separation. Affleck immediately responded with his own divorce filing. The former couple both asked for joint legal and physical custody of their three kids, Violet, Samuel, and Seraphina.

Shortly after their divorce filing in April, Gossip Cop busted a number of outlets for publishing inaccurate tales about the estranged spouses. A mere 24 hours after the duo announced their separation, we corrected the National Enquirer for falsely alleging Garner was “getting cozy” with her bodyguard, whom the supermarket tabloid contended was “an Affleck double.” Later that month, we busted the same publication for wrongly claiming Garner was flirting with Josh Duhamel on the set of their upcoming movie to make Affleck jealous. Of course, neither report was remotely accurate.

And in May, Gossip Cop debunked the Enquirer for the third time, after the repeatedly discredited magazine falsely alleged Garner kicked Affleck out of their family home over so-called sobriety concerns. As expected, the story was entirely fictional. The Daredevil actor had indeed moved out of the family’s estate and moved into a nearby property, but it had nothing to do with fears of a potential relapse. Despite a slew of sensational claims from the tabloids, the former couple remain good friends, having spent July 4 weekend together as a family.
